Today this is a plant nursery.
The custom of the time, until it was prohibited in 1808, was to bury the dead in a cemetery next to the church, with the exception of noble families and the bourgeois, who were entombed in mausoleums or in the floor of the temples. The majority of the actors were buried in the Church of San Sebastián's cemetery, and Lope's remains probably ended up here as well.
